Ok quick post with some odds and ends. Realized not many folk checked yesterday's blog. I blaming Melody for leaving nuff fellows with blurry eyes. I hear Dr D, Bull and Dog saying if I squint at a certain angle I think I can see the picture clearly. lol
Oh found a nice website last night. http://www.muzikmedia.com/. Lots of Caribbean music videos mainly dancehall but recent dancehall so I'm loving it. Had two of my favorite new songs I-Wayne's Cant satisfy her and Richie Spice earth a run red. Check it out.
No more reality tv, I've made a 180 degree switch to documentaries so if you have the time check out America and the making of Slavery on PBS tonight. Part one was excellent. I learnt quite a bit. Check Dekkah's blog for this appeal by David Walker (no known relation to Jimmy). Ever get the thought that Black speakers back in the day were infinitely more eloquent than us today?
Anyway on another hand watching those shows about how black folk were treated back in the day gets me mad heated sometimes. Brutha Code was talking about that a few days ago actually but I remember stuff like how I felt after watching the movie Rosewood. Man I was down to catch a body after that one. If a white person had butt up on me after I left the Uptown Theatre sorry or no sorry liks wud have to share. It would have been like (brax!) ya tek de man, (whack!) and hang he up from (boom!) a tree (biff!) and he aint do wunnah nuttin atall atall (capoowee! whax!) an den wunnah shoot the grandmudda cuhdear (body slam!) an she neva do (brek bottle!) nuttin (wupax) ta wunnah (body slama again!) atall whax (! biff! capax!) poor innocent old lady( whax!) Oh that was my weak attempt at adding sound to my blog lol like thy did in the old Batman show with Adam West.
I can imagine if I was to be watching tonight an order a pizza and the fella come in the middle of the show.
Oh so you think ya can bribe me with you pepperoni and three cheeses now huh?
My people worked hard for your people dammit and look how you trying to play me
Ummm, I'm not trying to play you sir, that will be 19.95
Oh and you want me to pay , after 400 years of subjugation and interrogation and radiation and hateration. Alright, wait dey I coming back
And if he was a bajan he would know that last phrase means that you should automatically run like the 4 horsemen of the Apocalypse chasing you. lol
Anyway I didnt really mean to make light of a serious situation. Thing is though although stuff changed we still got a ways to go. Who knows maybe 100 years from now some brother will see a movie about our times and get heated like I do watching those old movies.
Rest in Peace Big L!
